I just got my second box of parts for my RZV from Megazip today (about $500 worth of unavailable in USA parts)....no issues like that.
All parts look basically freshly minted...
They ship pretty fast and almost always have anything you need in stock, if still listed....with only one exception....(I tried to get some float bowl gaskets, but they would have held up the shipment about 3 weeks)
Time is not as much an issue with my build, as I know you want to get your project moving as fast as possible. But it only took a week from Tokyo to my house

https://www.megazip.net/zapchasti-dl...962/1ge-773877

It is for a 1GE RD500....or you can type in the number you need from the 51X parts book as well.

Never tried to design a swingarm, so I'm learning a lot.

Looks like reducing the length of the (R6 style) arm will cause the upper brace to hit the frame. Lowering the upper brace puts it closer to the chain. Also, moving the sprocket forward puts the chain closer to the upper brace. Need to do some careful measuring before making changes.

Pulled out & split the casings to install the bearing, output shaft & front sprocket. Now, I can measure from the chain run.



Was thinking about gullwing in this style, but not right for this bike. There's no shock in the swingarm, so, all 4 tubes can be centered and welded to the pivot tube. Much better for clearance issues. Could still gullwing the lower tube.



Still waiting on OEM pivot tube parts. Sent the jacked up parts back and ordered new ones.

R6 chain guard on top, RZ500 on the bottom.



Not sure if the RZ500 chain guard can be fitted to the tubular arm. May want a custom guard.

I bought some molybdenum-impregnated 1/4" plastic sheet and I cut and bend my chain slider bits out of it. Forms nicely enough with a little heat.

Wish I could find these:





Pretty sure it's a Chinese version. Probably Brombos.

Thinking about having a tool made for the custom arm.

Aluminum collar about 1.5 inch wide and .125 thick to slip over the rear axle. Weld a tab on the side with 2 holes. Bolt on a length of aluminum bar that replicates the circumfrence of the tire.

Would help with placement of the upper brace, and the crossbar between the 2 lower arms.

Might even be able to place a piece on the end of the bar that simulates the curve of the tread.

That made me laugh. Also made me think about the "Brembo's" on the new BWM 310 GS. They are ByBre's, which is literally shorthand for By Brembo. Why they don't just call them Brembo, I don't understand. I guess their ego won't let them put Brembo on an Asian built bike. I think the Indian built KTM's use ByBre's, too?

Why not use a full size wheel and tire?

The only R6 rear wheel I have is the new BST.

I could ship the tool, instead of the wheel & tire.

For measuring and fabrication.
